Learn & EngageArmchair Azure

Whether you are a formal learner, or just curious to find out more, we can help you to engage with creativity, conceptual thinking and cultural meaning at IMMA.

Armchair Azure

Armchair Azure is a free online experience designed for people living with dementia and their families and friends. During Armchair Azure, you will explore a selection of artwork from IMMA’s Collection with a facilitator who has received special training in dementia-inclusive arts programming. Armchair Azure is facilitated online via Zoom.

To participate you will need a laptop or tablet with a camera to take part. We don’t advise joining on a smart phone as it can be harder to see the image of the artwork we are discussing on a smaller screen.
